About Delivery of Primary Health Care at University of Winchester

This programme is designed for qualified doctors who are training for General Practice as GP Registrars. This certificate is taught alongside the Mid-Wessex Day Release Course and offers students the opportunity to earn 60 CATS points, which can be used towards future routes of study.Programme ContentThe programme centres upon the management and delivery of Primary Health Care, and emphasises the need for skills in practice management. There are two self-funded residential modules, one of which covers Finance and Practice Management, and another that covers the Management of Change. The programme also aims to nurture the personal development of the individual student; it provides the GP Registrar with a student forum to reflect on the realities of life in General Practice, and to develop the interpersonal and management skills needed for working as part of a practice team. This is encouraged by working in cohesive small groups. The current and proposed programme leads to an award through the nationally defined end-point of the nMRCGP (Membership of the Royal College of General Practitioners) examination.ModulesThe Management of Primary Health Care in General Practice The National Delivery of Primary Health Care Personal DevelopmentLearning and TeachingThe mode of learning employed throughout the programme is designed to reinforce the ethos of a team approach. This is intended to promote an awareness of multiple perspectives, value of divergent thinking and problem-solving in considering issues. Within sessions students are required to take a share in the responsibility of learning. This strategy has been adopted deliberately to challenge the previous learning experiences of students, and to promote an understanding of the range of professional roles to be found in a practice, where doctors work alongside practice managers and health service managers.AssessmentThe assessed work for each module is intended to develop and extend the learning on the course, requiring the student to integrate more formal modes of input with practical experience and group work. The aim is to enable the student to develop strategies for reflective practice and lifelong learning.
